Description Peng Huang 2010-06-13 19:08:05 EDT
Description of problem: Can not type anything in gnome-shell Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-shell-2.31.2-2.fc14.i686 gtk2-2.21.2-1.fc14.i686 gtk3-2.90.2-2.fc14.i686 ibus-1.3.5-1.fc14.i686 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. im-chooser to enable ibus 2. move cursor to left top corner 3. type something in the find entry Actual results: Can not type anything Expected results: Additional info: For some reason, ibus have to processes keypress events in async mode. So gtk_im_context_filter_keypress always returns FALSE. and if ibus need ignore some keyevents, ibus im context will use gdk_event_put to forward the event back to the client window (the window is from gtk_im_context_set_client_window).
Comment 1 Peng Huang 2010-06-13 19:12:50 EDT
BTW, I am thinking if gtk could provide a better way for processing key events in async mode.

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2010-06-17 11:45:40 EDT
I can confirm this, I see this too in rawhide. Keyboard input does not work in the overview or alt-f2. Alt-arrow workspace switching still works.

The same bug in gnome bugzilla. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=621659
Comment 6 Peng Huang 2010-06-22 22:50:47 EDT
I read code of gnome-shell and found the client window is from gdk_window_foreign_new_for_display, and gnome-shell use clutter to handle events. It seems the clutter does not process events in gdk event queue, and gnome-shell will never get the events sent by gdk_event_put.

This occurs on F13 as well. ibus-1.3.5-2.fc13.i686 gnome-shell-2.29.1-4.i686 gtk2-2.20.1-1.fc13.i686

When will this bug be fixed? It cause great inconvenient to using gnome-shell.
Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 08:07:06 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle. Changing version to '14'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
